COMMENTS: THE DRAMATIC ROMANTIC COMEDY "FINDING YOUR FEET" EXPLORES THEMES OF AGEING, FRIENDSHIP, FAMILY, TAKING CARE OF A LOVED ONE WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, INFIDELITY, DEATH, DIVORCE, DILLUSION, ROMANCE, FAILED MARRIAGES, DANCING, SOCIAL CLASS, LOSS, TERMINAL ILLNESS (CANCER), SISTERHOOD AND EMOTIONAL RECOVERY.
THEMES SUCH AS THOSE DEALING WITH TAKING CARE OF A LOVED ONE WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE, DISILLUSION, AGEING, LOSS, DEATH AND INFIDELITY ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE AND MAY BE CONFUSING AND UPSETTING TO COGNITIVELY IMMATURE CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS. THEMES OF LOSS AND FAILED MARRIAGES (DIVORCE) MAY ALSO BE ABOVE THE EMOTIONAL TOLERANCE LEVEL OF YOUNGER VIEWERS, AND CAUSE EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DISTRESS. HOWEVER, THE THEMES IN THE FILM ALSO CONVEY POSITIVE MESSAGES ABOUT HOPE, FINDING HAPPINESS, EMOTIONAL RECOVERY LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST, MOVING FORWARD, FINDING NEW LOVE, STEPPING OUT OF ONE'S COMFORT ZONE, THAT LIFE IS WORTH LIVING, THAT ONE IS NEVER TOO OLD FOR SECOND CHANCES, READJUSTING TO CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES (FOR EXAMPLE FINANCIALLY), ENJOYING SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE, WHICH MAY BE BENEFICIAL AND INSPIRATIONAL FOR MORE COGNITIVELY MATURE VIEWERS FACING SIMILAR CHALLENGES.
THEMES ARE TREATED SENSITIVELY AND ARE PRESENTED IN A LIGHT-HEARTED, COMEDIC AND HEART-WARMING TONE WITH CHEERY MUSIC AND BEAUTIFUL VISUALS, WHICH ARE ENHANCED BY THE CINEMATIC FORMAT.
HUMOUR SEEMS TO BE AIMED AT A MORE MATURE AUDIENCE, AND ALTHOUGH PERHAPS TOO COMPLEX AND MATURE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS, SHOULD NOT BE HARMFUL TO MORE COGNITIVELY MATURE VIEWERS OVER 13 YEARS.
THE FILM ALSO CONTAINS DRAMATIC ENTERTAINMENT VALUE, BUT THE STORY AND OLDER CHARACTERS MAY NOT BE OF PARTICULAR INTEREST TO CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS.
